Sweet Mystery

 

“Without mysteries, life would be very dull indeed. What would be left to strive for if everything were known?”
― Charles de Lint

 

It’s funny you know. So many people out there claiming to have the answers. Even if they don’t have the hubris (or the stupidity) to claim to know it all, they know the one true path to find out. They know what is to come and that it is coming soon. Just follow their methods and you can know too. Yet all or most of these ways are different. Either a little different or in some cases almost polar opposites. You pay your money and you take your choices.
Maybe tho, the right path for us to follow is whatever path we’re on. Studying what calls us and learning and living what and how we can. Maybe its ok not to know but to appreciate the mystery of life. Yes the world is changing and we need to change but isn’t change the constant? Perhaps there will be some cataclysm that is to come and we need to be ready or perish. If perishing is possible. Perhaps we are on the brink of the most positive transformation that the human race has yet to see. All of these possibilities and more are out there. Each of us will know as we get there and for me that is ok. Part of what has always kept me going is curiosity as to what can happen next. May we all grow in wonder and embrace the mystery.
Blessings, G

Ask and you shall Wonder

 

“The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery.”
― Anaïs Nin

 

Children are amazing. No matter how many questions you answer for them they still have another. Why? How? How does this work? Why do people do that? Why do people believe that?It’s great to explain things to kids to show them new ideas and watch them roll them around in their mind trying to see if they have a candy coated centre or if they make sense at all? Then something happens to them. Fear sets in that not knowing the answers will make them look foolish or thinking differently about things that other people accept will make them stand out. If these differences aren’t encouraged, then our wonderful inquisitive kids will try their best to blend in with the masses and lose that sense of wonder and mystery. Some of us may feel that we have lost it and don’t know how to get it back. A good way is to ask the questions we gave up asking long ago. Why do people act like that? How does that work? What is my reason for believing this? The more questions we ask, the more we wonder.
Blessings, G

No Solution Needed

 

“The world’s a puzzle; no need to make sense out of it.” – Socrates”
― Dan Millman

 

Sometimes we can get so caught up in the planning of our lives that we never get around to living them. All too often, We map out how things will be. we leave no room for the spontaneous, the miraculous, the unexpected serendipitous something which whether it be a sunrise or an adventure can add shades of meaning to our lives. We don’t need to know everything. Chances are tho we learn more and more that we cannot know everything. So we may as well enjoy both the possibilities and the mystery of life. We never know when a spontaneous wrong turn can lead to a new adventure.
Blessings, G
